Organic Black Beauty Zucchini - Cucurbita pepo
This wonderful heirloom was introduced to American home gardeners in the 1930’s. A compact, vigorous, bush with silky skin will enrapture even seasoned gardeners as the dark green turns almost black! Enjoy fresh, made into zucchini noodles, bread, stir fry, baked and even in soups, too. This is an excellent variety to freeze.
